I've read a lot about the fake memory cards flooding ebay, and I'm wondering if the same is true of filters. I'm looking for a couple hoya uv hmc filters. Does anyone know of counterfeit filters being manufactured?

Thank you,
Luke

Don't know of any specifically. But, I wouldn't doubt there's fakes around. Spend a couple of dollars more and get them from a reputable supplier, you won't regret it.

This guys great, I just bought a PK-13 27.5 extention tube this week and he shipped fast. I only paid $43.00 He has a ebay store and an online store check him out. I bought my tube through his ebay store.

I would guess that the market is not large enough to make selling fake filters worth it.

thanks to everyone for the replys

I bought a 58mm before the "is it fake?" question came up, so I guess I'll have it shipped, then buy the 67mm if the 58 looks good.

Thanks again
Luke

eta: the 58's the real thing
